It has taken me a few months to write this due to the fact I have been so busy building Wordpress sites for myself and clients. None of this would have been possible without the expert guidance of Alex. 2 days training in the fantastic surroundings with a true guru who breaks all processes down into understandable modules. Alex is very quick to assess your capabilities and adjust training to suit your own requirements.
His knowledge extends far beyond Wordpress and tips were freely given on SEO, Hosting, Photoshop and more. I researched extensively before parting with my hard earn't cash for training and can honestly say it is the best investment our company has ever made. We used to outsource WP developing, Alex has now given us the oppurtunity to maximise profit margins.
This level of 1 on 1 training is priceless and cannot be matched. To say I highly recommend Alex and his courses is a understatement, You will struggle to find someone with this level of expertise who is willing to share knowledge especially when it comes to the SEO side of things. Even after training Alex has been on hand to offer assistance, cannot thank you enough Alex and keep up the great work.

I did a one-day advanced wordpress course with Alex and found it very useful. Rather than sticking to a set schedule, Alex completely tailored things to my needs and was able to help me with individual queries.
Alex was very open and honest with his advice, I felt his recommendations were not only the most useful to me but also the most cost effective and best for my audience.
I would absolutely work with Alex again, either to further my knowledge of wordpress but also to work on newsletters or SEOLena, Institute of Physics Hi Alex
Just a quick note to say thank you for my Wordpress training, I have found it to be a great help and has completely fast tracked me into the Wordpress arena! As you are aware I have a good programming background, albeit with Adobe Cold Fusion, and was looking for a course that would NOT teach me how to suck eggs, and go beyond the writing of posts and installing of plug-ins.
You course taught me exactly what I needed to know from a programmers point of view, setting up page and post templates based on categories, customising the admin area, insight into the wordpress codex and much more. You also provided a great knowledge of essential plug-ins!
I have almost finished my first website using the Wordpress platform, and I have to say I was really impressed with the construction time!
Jason Congerton, http://www.jasoncongerton.co.uk// During my 3 days with Alex I've learned lots. Things I never though I'd be learning, the course has motivated me to really start focussing on a complete new are for me - building websites. I'll definately be booking more days with Alex in the future to expand my knowlegde around this area!
Maarten As a Web Developer my 1-1 session on Wordpress with Alex was invaluable as we covered those specific areas where I needed more knowledge. It saved me hours of searching on forums for answers. Alex's extensive experience working with Wordpress makes him an excellent mentor and he is generous in sharing his knowledge. I recommend a 1-1 session with Alex to other web developers whether new to Wordpress or those wishing to extend their skills. It will save you much frustration and development time searching for solutions and give you the confidence to extend the range of web projects you could develop."
Rae Roberts, New Vistas Ltd Alex taught me exactly what I needed to know making the process of integrating HTML with Wordpress clear and easy to follow, always making sure I understood each step before proceeding to the next, plus he shared some valuable tips and tricks along the way. I intend to book another day with Alex for a more in-depth follow up session.
Chris White @ Gun4Hire Very worthwhile training from Alex, which has given me a grounding and understanding of HTML, CSS and PHP, as well as training on Wordpress, and how to make the most out of it. I would highly recommend Alex.
